Telestroke Resources and Tools from Across Canada

2017 UPDATE
April, 2017

7.1  Introduction

The Canadian Telestroke Action Collaborative has brought together recognized leaders in telestroke and telemedicine from across the country to develop this implementation toolkit.  The Telestroke Summit, held in New Brunswick in May 2013, expanded this group to include a wide range of stakeholders at all levels of involvement, including funders and system leaders, healthcare administrators, physicians, nurses, rehabilitation specialists and technical experts.

The Canadian Telestroke Action Collaborative will continue to grow and include more front-line stroke care professionals, patients and families.  Part of the commitment made by Summit participants was to openly distribute information relating to telestroke approaches, protocols, methods and documentation to support colleagues in other centres who are in the pre-planning, planning and early implementation stages of telestroke program development within their own jurisdictions.

Call to Action:

The CTAC collaborative members consider this toolkit a living document and we invite all groups who are engaged in telestroke activities across the continuum to submit their tools, educational materials and other resources developed for telestroke so this toolkit may continue to be enhanced.

Kindly submit all resources you wish to share to strokebestpractices@hsf.ca
